Spring Leaves: Free Embroidery Pattern

Fancy a simple embroidery project to celebrate spring? Stitch a trio of little green leaves!

This leafy pattern is designed to fit nicely inside a 3 inch embroidery hoop, but using a 4 inch hoop when stitching will give you more room to work. It would look nice framed in a hoop (maybe with a loop of pretty green ribbon or ric rac attached to make a spring ornament?), or sewn as a motif onto larger projects. 

I've not had a chance to sew this myself but I'm thinking ALL THE GREENS. I'm planning on keeping things simple and sewing the whole design with backstitch - remember that smaller stitches will help you sew smooth curves.    

Click here to open the pattern in a new window, then print it at 100%. A hi-res PDF version of this pattern is also available in my Patreon pattern library.

This pattern was adapted from my felt spring leaves brooch tutorial (I do love a project variation!).


If you'd like to sew some more leaves, how about embroidered felt oak leaves...


 ... or a felt monstera leaf brooch?


This pattern is for non commercial use only: you can use it to stitch as many leaf trios as you want for yourself or as gifts, but please don't make any for sale. Thanks xx
